Vintage Celluloid French Ivory Necklace Big Creamy Beads - image 1 of 3

Viva la France! After a late 19th century synthetic material was created to imitate natural ivory (which was expensive and difficult to obtain), the result was French Ivory, a plastic celluloid first produced by the Xylonite Company in 1866.

The French went wild, creating beautiful items for the ladies' vanity and unique jewelry for her to wear.

This necklace is from the Art Deco era, made of large French Ivory beads. The celluloid French Ivory is distinguishable from natural ivory by the parallel, non-intersecting, and regular striations that run along pieces.

This necklace measures 27 inches around. It's 7/8 inch wide at the center beads. The clasp is a secure vintage screw barrel that blends in with the beads.

Necklace weighs 167 grams. Excellent vintage condition.
